Healthy Eating Habits of School-Aged Children in Rural Areas

This study presents knowledge and understanding of healthy eating habits in children. It teaches us that children are capable of taking valuable lessons and knowledge away from a small intervention in a classroom. The test was statistically significant, results found using SPSS statistical analysis, p<.002. However, the mean test scores for the children in the intervention only increased from 51.76 to 60.48 from the pre to post test. This shows us that even more nutritional education is needed in elementary school children so they can make wiser, and healthier choices - but also that a small intervention can increase children's knowledge as well.
